Seattle Real-Time Show Trip Report

On Tuesday, October 17 I attended the Real-Time Computer Show near SeaTac Airport in Seattle. Because of our startup of Embedded Linux Journal and being local I figured it was worth the trip.

This was a small, table-top show with around 50 exhibitors. The first exhibitor I talked to was LynuxWorks. Being a Linux company this was an easy place to start.

After giving them some copies of ELJ to hand out I moved along to ADLINK Technology America, a board manufacturer. I talked at length to Steven Neo, their VP of Marketing. Turns out that ADLINK is very Linux-friendly and we even dreamed up an interesting deal for LJ readers that you should hear about in a month or two.

My confidence up, I talked to virtually all of the other vendors. The general response varied from "we have customers using our hardware with Linux" to "yes, we have Linux running right here in the booth". With those vendors even including Sun microsystems I see a bright future for embedded Linux and Embedded Linux Journal

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
